Yep, I know now clues at all as to what might be the problem. :-/

The 4.3.0-17 SRPM builds fine with or without the the libGL patch on my
RH 9 system.

I have all errata applied always. ;-)

Hmm, unless the patch requires a newer glibc, GCC or something else in
order to work correctly that I don't have installed, I think it might be
a bug. Might not necessarily be in the libGL patch. Maybe the patch
triggers an existing bug in X. But 4.3.0-17 does work fine without the
libGL patch.
